Record Month – 12000 Visitors, $560

I’ve enjoyed doing these monthly reviews. It gives me an excuse to look through statistics, like I don’t do that enough. Plus, I set goals for the blog and myself.

Traffic and income

This month, we topped two great goals together. First, Legal Andrew saw 12,300 visitors in June. That’s about a 50% increase since April and May! Needless to say, I’m definitely excited. Although now it’s going to be tough to keep growing. But with your great participation, we’ll find a way.

Second, blog earnings reached a new high in June – $560. Here are the three main contributors:

  • AdSense – $144.86
  • Text Link Ads – $129.84
  • PayPerPost – $195.47

If there was a secret behind these earnings, I’d love to share it with you. But I’m still trying to figure everything out myself. AdSense is really because of increased traffic. Text Link Ads went up due to some post links that sold. And PayPerPost is always a solid money-earner, especially if you snag some high-paying opportunities.

Posts to read

The most popular posts during June were all published this month. And two of them are actually about law!

    Great! Good luck on growing the visits. Unfortunately, my blog has hit a bit of a plateau recently.

    Hi Jake,

    I think we all hit plateaus from time to time. It happens. That’s when we have to look for new and interesting angles, to keep building traffic and readers. Just keep blogging away!

    @Andrew: Thanks for the encouragement. Thankfully I have pretty good results in Google, so that helps. I’m working on other search engines now. I’m horrible in Ask and Live Search, and not great in Yahoo!.

    Great progress, Andrew! I noted this month that my income is increasingly passive. But PPP has been really poor for me. I don’t find any opps worth the bother at the moment,…

    @InvestorBlogger – It’s good to hear that your passive income is increasing. Great work!

    @spike – It sounds like you’re doing good. You’re definitely publishing great content!

    Hi Andrew,

    Just wondering when you started your blog – how long did it take you to grow those figures?

    Hi Minx,

    That’s a very good question.

    I started seriously blogging last August. I had about 30 posts that I imported from a wordpress.com blog, but August was when I started looking toward monetizing legalandrew.com.

    Here are my AdSense earnings:
    Sept – 0.34
    Oct – 3.69
    Nov – 33.30
    Dec – 50.39
    Jan – 50.61
    Feb – 28.68
    Mar – 40.57
    Apr – 78.43

    This weekend I’ll publish a summary post, with some pretty graphs. Also, I’ll try to point out what helped AdSense take off. I hope this helps!

    Thanks Andrew. Graphs are always good. :)
    I think I’m doing pretty well for AdSense so far but I don’t have much else in terms of income streams. Were your PayPerPosts on legal topics, is that why they paid so well? I haven’t tried it yet because it always seems to be about $5-10.

    Minx – I’ve done a couple legal-related PayPerPost articles. But most of them are general consumer ones. The average PPP job is around $5-10. However, I saw one yesterday for $50, and I just saw one this afternoon for $35. I have a side blog that I do some PPP on, but the majority of the earnings come right from Legal Andrew. And the higher-paying opps usually require a strong PageRank – like 4 or 5. I’ve even seen some PR 6 opps for $100 or more.

    Have you considered Text Link Ads? The earnings are very niche-dependent, but it takes zero effort.

    Thanks for that. I’m eagerly awaiting my first PageRank! Must be soon.

    I have considered Text Link Ads but it annoys me on other blogs.
